Who doesn’t love a BLT. This version takes it to the top! Pair with Hensell or Roussanne which both love the saltiness of blue cheese and bacon. The acidity in the tomatoes works great with acidity in wines. Good quality whole wheat bread is a must and Toasted gives the sandwich more structure. Peppery arugula acts like pepper to your sandwich for a balance of spicy, sweet, salty, fatty and acidic!
